The Little Learning Warriors took part in a series of three nature exploration days in Schenley Park and Frick Park.

Sponsored by United Way’s Healthy Out-of-School Time (HOST), which encompasses a wide range of health-focused practices aimed at getting and keeping kids on a path to healthy behavior and well-being, the students ventured into the parks to study plants and journal and sketch in their notebooks about their findings.

With backpacks donated by West Penn Hospital the students were sure to have their hands free to hug a tree or two!
